Another Brooklyn - Jacqueline Woodson

Staff Pick

We all know the summer-in-the-city clichés. Open fire hydrants, ice cream trucks, the sexy kind of sweat. There’s a bit of that in Another Brooklyn, sure, but the true heat in this book is emotional. Jacqueline Woodson writes friendship better than just about anyone. It only takes her a second to show how much her characters adore each other, how loyal to each other they are. Woodson is a poet as well as a prose writer, and she knows how to make a few words pack a punch. You’ll want to linger over each scene, and when the book is done, you’ll be tempted to go right back to the beginning. And why not? It’s the start of summer, and there’s something about Another Brooklyn that makes you feel like you’ve got all the time in the world.
